Alan Dershowitz: In Light of the Mueller Report, Media 'Should be Hanging Their Head in Shame'



The Mueller Report is done, the Democrats are empty-handed, and the President is riding high.

Rachel Maddow is verklempt (here), and Joy Reid is calling “Conspiracy” (here).


Meanwhile, Carl Bernstein is praising a stellar job by the national media, who’ve done the polar opposite of a stellar job (here, if you can stand it).

But Alan Dershowitz, for one, is calling it rightly.

On Fox News Sunday, the Harvard law professor pointed out the obvious concerning the media’s two-year fanged drool over Trump-Russia collusion:

“I have to tell you, they should be hanging their head in shame when you think about how many people went out on a limb and predicted there would be indictments for obstruction, there would be indictments for collusion, there would be indictments for this and for that. They made it seem like it was an open and shut case, and they misinformed the American public, and they have to have some public accountability when you say things that turn out not to be true.”

I think he’d make a good umpire.

Following a four-page Mueller Report assessment sent to Congress by Attorney General Bill Barr, Alan — who voted for Hillary — waxed on the prospect of further indictments:

“[I]t’s important that we did learn there are no sealed indictments. There’s no recommendation in the report for any further indictments, and so this is not what many people feared, just shifting it over to the southern district and saying we’re not going to indict this guy, but maybe you should. That was done with the attorney general as far as the obstruction of justice, but he didn’t do it with the southern district.”

Dershowitz also said he himself — a target of the Left on occasion over Trump defense and Mueller predictions — was cleared by the report:


“Look — I’ve been vindicated. I’ve been saying this from day one and been criticized and condemned for simply doing a legal analysis that I think any reasonable, objective, nonpartisan lawyer would have done, would have come to the same conclusion I came to and, essentially, the conclusion that was come to today by the attorney general.”

Good call.

At the end of the 765-day investigation, the media’s desperate attempts to manifest a Donald-in-shackles scenario has turned out to be a massive swing-and-a-miss.
